  • Peripheral Vision features Don Scott – guitar, Michael Herring – bass, Nick Fraser – drums, Trevor Hogg – sax

Peripheral Vision is an exciting and innovative Toronto-based jazz quartet.  The creative leaders of the group are long time musical collaborators, guitarist Don Scott and bassist Michael Herring. They have assembled a synergistic musical unit designed to push the boundaries of jazz while engaging the listener with a grooving, toe-tapping immediacy. You can hear the influences of the classic 1960’s era of jazz – Wayne Shorter, Booker Little, Charles Mingus – mixed with the modern New York scene with hints of Radiohead, reggae and electronica.

Peripheral Vision has just released their second album, Spectacle: Live! Scott and Herring are joined by saxophonist Trevor Hogg and drummer Nick Fraser. While the compositions are Herring and Scott’s, Peripheral Vision is defined by its group rapport. Bringing back the anything-is-possible democratic approach of both 1960’s jazz and garage bands, the music takes shape as a collective process.

Our full five-concert line-up is made possible by the support of The City of Kingston, The Kingston Arts Council, Carolyn Thornburrow of Sun Life Financial, GoSaBe Development and Design, Shoalts and Zaback Architects Ltd.Chez Piggy, Novel Idea, and Old Farm Fine Foods.
